Each week, the participants will be expected to attend 2 sessions: a theory session (1.5 hours) and a practice session (1.5 hours).

Before each theory session, you will be asked to watch a pre-recorded lecture at your own pace.

Before each practical session, you will be offered a short test. The sessions will start with a Q&A on the test and other chapter questions.
